Rockwell-Levy Debate, 01/09/66: George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, debates Ben Levy, chairman of the Houston Socialist Forum, about demonstrators against the Vietnam War. Rice University hosted the event two days after inviting Rockwell to speak on campus. While studying at Brown University, Rockwell began to argue against equality and integration. His anti-Semitic and racist political activism developed when he moved to San Diego at the beginning of the Korean War, becoming a full supporter of Adolf Hitler and Nazism, denying the Holocaust and eventually forming the American Nazi Party. On August 25, 1967, members of Rockwell's party shot and killed him in front of a laundromat.
